The con is on.

On the verge of bankruptcy and desperate for his big break, aspiring filmmaker Bobby Bowfinger concocts a crazy plan to make his ultimate dream movie. Rallying a ragtag team that includes a starry-eyed ingenue, a has-been diva and a film studio gofer, he sets out to shoot a blockbuster featuring the biggest star in Hollywood, Kit Ramsey -- only without letting Ramsey know he's in the picture.

Germany German (Deutsch)

Bowfingers große Nummer

Action-Star Kit Ramsey steigt, ohne es zu ahnen, zum Hauptdarsteller einer unsäglichen Science-Fiction-Klamotte auf. Deren Urheber, der notorisch bankrotte Filmemacher Bowfinger und sein unbegabter Drehbuchautor Afrim, haben es sich in den Kopf gesetzt, die Welt mit einem Werk über Regentropfen-förmige Aliens zu beglücken. Dieses Unterfangen wird ihnen jedoch nur finanziert, wenn es ihnen gelingt, Kit für das Projekt zu gewinnen. Also machen sich die tapferen Glücksritter mit versteckter Kamera auf zur fröhlichen Hollywoodstar-Jagd.

France French (Français)

Bowfinger, roi d'Hollywood

Bobby Bowfinger, patron de la Bowfinger International Picture dont le siège est situé dans une zone déserte de Los Angeles, est un rêveur, loser criblé de dettes sur lequel aucun studio ne miserait un centime. Mais Bobby n'a pas dit son dernier mot. Emballé par un scénario de série Z écrit par un obscur comptable, il approche sous un fallacieux prétexte la superstar du film d'action, Kit Ramsey, qui l'éjecte sans ménagement de sa limousine. Bobby a alors l'excellente idée de filmer l'acteur en caméra cachée et d'en faire le protagoniste involontaire de sa série Z.

Italy Italian (Italiano)

Il produttore cinematografico Bobby Bowfinger desidera ardentemente fare un film, cosa per cui ha risparmiato una vita intera. Adesso che ha una sceneggiatura scritta da un contabile, un operatore, l'accesso al materiale per girare e alcuni attori che non vedono l'ora di recitare può realizzare il suo sogno, ma ha bisogno di una casa produttrice per cominciare a girare il film.
